Monday Bear Blogging:

Here's another bear picture from my brief trip to Montana earlier this month. This one is a black bear we saw north of Old Faithful, shortly after our hike to Mystic Falls. My wife took it, so it's a much better picture.

You too can see Russia from your house?

If you're going to go bear blogging, you might want to carry one of these. I read that it is not pleasant to fire, but it is light weight and packs a mean punch.

I hope he is not planning to start another market, wherever he is going.

Unless that is a telephoto lens, you are within charging distance of that bear. I submit the more distance between you and a bear the better.

My kids' Boy Scout troop encountered a grizzly in 2006 on our way hiking back to Old Faithful from Mystic Falls (just as you were doing here). Photos here.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
